London three-piece PUPPY have today released their incredible and introspective brand new single ‘Shame’ through Rude Records. Following on from both ‘The Kiss’ (currently zooming past 100,000 streams on Spotify) and the Brooklyn Vegan approved ‘…And Watched it Glow’, ‘Shame’ shows a different side to PUPPY, with its sombre and spooky tone.

” ‘Shame’ is possibly our favourite song on the album (although they’re all stone cold rippers). It marks a big step forward for us creatively in our minds because you’ve still got all the hallmarks of our “sound” (sweet harmony guitars, sad boi lyrics), but set against these big snappy groove between the drums and bass. We wanted you to be able to blast it out your low rider with the windows down whilst analysing your life choices and maybe crying a bit.” – PUPPY

The band have also today launched their pre-orders for the forthcoming ‘Pure Evil’ album. Due on May 6th, pre-orders launched today include very limited vinyl runs, CD, cassette tape, album merch and a PUPPY ‘Pure Evil’ candle. You can see all of these items and pre-order the album HERE or pre order digitally HERE

“We are also very excited to say vinyl pre-orders for our new album “Pure Evil” are now live. Buy them for yourselves, loved ones, and even sworn enemies that you’re looking to bury the hatchet with. You could also throw an exclusive t-shirt or scented candle into the mix to enhance your listening experience even further.” – PUPPY
